Model Boats magazine January 2016 ncluded a free plan of a Huntsman 31 complete with photos and a step by step build guide. Unfortunately the model is 24". I also wanted a bigger model so I redrew the plan double size. It wasn't too difficult and only took a couple of evenings with a some lining paper from B&Q and a calculator and voila! At the moment I am planking the roof of the cabins and trying to decide between a brushless motor and an old Weston rare earth brushed motor I used to use for fast electrics. The article in MB also ran into February 2016 where all the fiddly finishing bits were described, also with many photos.
I expect one can obtain back issues from their web site. Anyone interested in Huntsmen should get these two issues for the detail alone.

Now you mention it, I might have got carried away there! I now think I must have sent off for the plans after reading the two articles. Apologies guys. (Sulks and shuffles off, head down).

Big Tone - what you have sounds like a Huntsman built from the Precedent kit.

Plans are sometimes on EBay for the drawings for other kits but I've never seen any for the Precedent. But be wary of the EBay offerings - I've bought drawings and the templates have been very poorly traced/drawn and are almost useless and I've had to redraw them.

But as regards the Precedent I have one, bought already built and done pretty well so if you want any photos let me know.
